Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett indicated Wednesday that he isn't expecting the New York Giants to play the way they did during a 27-0 loss to Philadelphia when they face his team on Sunday afternoon.
"They are a good football team. They are really well-coached. They have a lot of good players," Garrett said Wednesday during a conference call with New York media. "You look at the body of work. You look at the tape all year long. There is a lot of good stuff in all three areas. We know this team and we know how challenging they can be offensively, defensively and in the kicking game and just how they do things."
Garrett expressed respect for Giants quarterback Eli Manning.
"He is obviously a heck of a player and has been for a long, long time. They have a new offensive coordinator there and they are doing some different things from a scheme standpoint. But I see a really good football player, like I have seen for a long time," Garrett said. "They are a really good football team, a good offensive team and he is certainly a heck of a quarterback and has been for a long, long time."
Garrett was also asked about Kevin Ogletree, the wide receiver the Giants signed this week. Ogletree played for the Cowboys for three seasons.
"Kevin is a good player. Kevin was a big part of what we did there for a couple years as our third or fourth receiver. He has a lot of physical tools. He can run. He is a very good route runner. He has a good understanding of the game," Garrett said. "Very quarterback-friendly receiver and our guys always loved to throw to him, and he can do a lot of things. He can play outside, he can play inside. He stretches the field and he is a sophisticated route runner on the underneath stuff. They certainly got a good player."
